The eleven stories presented by MAPS at the 6th edition of the festival Photoreporter en Baie de Saint-Brieuc (Oct 5th to Nov 9th 2017) tell us how people around the globe face the daily challenges of our unstable world. Together, these stories reflect the current state of mind. Going beyond a juxtaposition of exhibitions, they invite us to take a step aside, refine our critical sense and arouse questions rather than answers.
This story addresses the universal stigma of menstruation in order to break this taboo and understand its impacts on women around the globe.
